It's is well worth the 5 stars that most reviewers give it.
This is family run and it shows, all the staff are full of smiles and are as helpful as they can be without being intrusive. The rooms are charming, everything very clean and welcoming and in good working order.
I noticed a previous reviewer mentioned that there was no hot water, this was not the case but it did take 2-3 minutes to arrive, patience wins out. The charm of this place far out weighs the slight inconvenience of the wait.
Teda, the assistant manager was brilliant anticipating all needs and making sure that guests were matched with appropriate TukTuk drivers, mine SuPhon wen tout of his way to take great care that I enjoyed my stay.
Battambang is well worth a visit, I stayed 3 nights and could easily have done a couple more. The town is an attractive colonial throwback and the countryside and the ruins, temples, other attractions are not inundated with other tourists.
So if you are looking for a relaxing stopover after the frenetic activity of Siem Riep or Phnom Penh then this is the place for you.
